Transmission Slips Could Slide You Right Off The Road

You’ve likely encountered someone talking about their car or truck transmission "slipping”. What does that mean, why does it do it, and where do you go from here? At Westerville Automotive in Westerville, OH, our trained staff has the answers to get you safely back on the road. Transmission slippage is certainly one of the most dreaded issues you face as the owner of a car or truck’s and there are some indicators that let you know that something is wrong.

When your vehicle "feels like" it is slipping when shifting gears, it doesn’t necessarily mean your vehicle’s transmission needs to be replaced. A transmission feels like it “slips” either when you hit the gas or are trying to hold a steady speed and notice the RPMs start creeping up and falling back down as the transmission fights to stay engaged. Shifting gears could cause harsh noises, delays in acceleration and high RPMs. You could also see the inability to reverse your car, unusual or burnt smells or even a check engine light come on in your dash lights.

Slippage can also happen between gears, as the transmission struggles to shift or maintain a gear. There are a variety of reasons that can cause this, and all of them should be taken care of immediately to avoid further damage to your SUV or truck. The best rule of thumb is to have it checked out when you feel anything different in your transmission and to take no chances with it. Our technicians at Westerville Automotive can get you fixed up and ready to go. With modern transmissions, slippage can be the result of minute maladjustment, failed electronic component, worn-out internals or many other reasons.

At Westerville Automotive, we’ll take a look at some of the non-fatal issues your truck’s transmission may have that can be repaired to get you back in shape.
